Square Off Raises $1 Million via Crowdfunding on Kickstarter & Indiegogo

The company's latest products, Square Off Neo and Swap, have raised over $ 1,000,000 on the global crowdfunding platforms.

Smart Chess Board

Square Off, the renowned makers of the world’s smartest automated chess boards, have hit the $1M crowdfunding mark for their latest board gaming range - Square Off Neo and Swap by 5500+ backers from over 70 countries. The crowdfunding campaign, launched on Kickstarter and followed up by Indiegogo, is 2000% funded over the goal amount of $50,000. This beats their previous crowdfunding campaign, back in 2017, that raised over US $535,000.

Square Off Neo, at a starting price of $169, is a lighter, faster and affordable chess board meant for every household. Its adaptive AI, personalized chess coaching and 1.5x faster movements makes it a-hard-to-resist for any chess lover out there. With a seamless, no-press movement of pieces and silent machinery, the board is quite a leap from the existing models.

Square Off Swap, currently priced at $229, offers users the convenience of playing multiple board games on the same surface. To begin with, it supports four games - Chess, Draughts, Halma and Connect 4, making it a desirable board game for all age groups. Paired with the Square Off App, both these products are globally connected; so, whether your opponent is in a different room or a different continent, the game still goes on!

“We are exhilarated by the success of our second crowdfunding campaign,” says the CEO, Bhavya Gohil. “We introduced Neo with a vision of an exemplary, affordable chessboard for every home and with Swap, we’ve attempted to revolutionize board gaming and thereby the experience altogether. Our next step is to get the boards in production and deliver at the earliest. Though the pandemic has affected our delivery timelines, we are committed to deliver quality products to our backers at the earliest.”
